Soundtrack to 2012


A little bit of everything is what most of us say these days when we describe our musical tastes. For me, it depends most of all on the mood I’m in when I’m listening to them. The following songs aren’t exactly the best of the year (some of them are older than 2012) but they are favourites of mine that put together a nice signature and stamp on 2012. This is as close as I can get to describing my own little bit of everything.
